I can’t be the one
Who walks today
I can’t be the one

So I am sitting
Beside my river
of Life

Thinking
Wondering
Just how much
Effort
Would be required
To slide back in

And whether
Or not
I could keep
My head
Above the fast
And furious
Water
And if I pray
So very hard
To every god
And loving
goddess

Can I please
Not drown
This time
